The best weapon is pressing G while holding a pickaxe.

Well, before you go off buying them it's really not a good idea to buy weapons from the store. If you bought a key, which is cheaper than some weapons in the store, it would probably be possible to trade for one of every weapon (except for some non-dropped reskins).

To answer your question though, it really depends. All of soldiers weapons have their ups and down, for your primary and secondary a lot of people recommend you use the stock rocket launcher and shotgun in general even. Melee's usually the escape plan that's used, but equalizer, market gardener, disciplinary action, and for capture point or payload maps the pain train all can be used too.

Vanilla weapon if you don't want to jump.

I see you own a black box. Which is the best weapon for soldier without a medic.

If you do have a medic stock rocket launcher is best.

Sadly, the Black Box got nerfed in the Gun Mettle Update, which makes you much more dependent on Medics and Engineers.

Black Box stats on the Gun Mettle Update:

20+ health DEPENDING on the damage done. (Similar to the Concheror)
-25% clip size (Stays the same)

Honestly I think that the best weapon for the Soldier is the Stock Rocket Launcher. If you combine them with the Gunboats you can rocket jump efficiently, but it will remove your shotgun, making you less efficient doing damage. For Melee, you will have to take the Escape Plan as it is very efficient in order to escape from incoming fire when you are in very low health, hence the name. But it will be risky to kill someone with it as all the damage you will take will be in mini-crits. Technically, all of the weapons are balanced and all have their ups and downs.. But please, don't take the Righteous Bison. Please...

Considering the OP hasn't been on for 65 days and doesn't even play TF2 anymore, I think he doesn't need an answer anymore I guess.
